The Best Runes, Items, and Advice to Dominate Your Competition
We set our Irelia build recommendations by examining 608,140 recently ranked League matches with her in them. We only propose the best winrate Irelia builds that were built by ranked LoL players enough times for us to suggest them. With so many matches in our data, we are very confident in our provided builds.
If you would like more focused build guidance and advice, feel free to check out our guide to playing with Irelia at the bottom of the page. Additionally, to view the best Irelia build from a different skill level, please choose a different skill tier from the dropdown menu above. The calculated Irelia builds will change to reflect that division’s meta.
Best Irelia Runes
If you are fighting a varied enemy team composition, you should strongly consider getting her the Conqueror, Triumph, Legend: Alacrity, Last Stand, Nullifying Orb, and Transcendence runes. In recent games, she won the greatest fraction of her rounds when built with these runes. However, if you are playing a more homogenous enemy team composition, such as an AD focused or a tank heavy team, you should instead browse down and to the right to get the best Irelia runes to defeat your particular set of opponents.

Best Items for Your Irelia Build
The best items to include in your Irelia build include: Goredrinker, Guardian Angel, Sterak's Gage, and Blade of The Ruined King. Additionally, as with our rune builds, you can also find great, dedicated, Irelia item builds farther down for the particular enemy team composition you are playing in your current game. Those who included these items in their builds had a much better win rate than those who used other Irelia builds.

Guide to Playing with Irelia
- Harass enemy champions by casting Bladesurge on a dying minion before going in.
- Transcendent Blades let you siphon life from enemies while you are running away; this lets you gain your health back and potentially return to a fight if desired.
